Yes, day 0, started a bit chaotic, too many people paid and could not get in MEO arena. Yes, they should have told us to be there earlier. But if there is one thing that I have learned is that you can actually try to hack the system. Somehow it happened. Against all odds I got in the arena, and the opening session was fantastic.

It was all about the energy. It was about belonging to a tribe of geeks, but most of all you felt like this was a movement of people that wanted to change something and this is good.

Of course when you gather 55.000 people in the same place not everything will go according to plan, that’s life, that’s how things roll and once you overcome that everything is much easier.
